Actress and New York Fashion icon Kristin Davis has a big heart. On HGTV's Celebrity IOU, she gave back to a friend and fellow single mother, Tiffany. The two have been a constant source of inspiration and guidance for one another for nearly a decade. “There are so many memories we’re going to make here,” said Tiffany upon seeing her new home. “We’ll have to have parties a lot,” added her daughter, Lyric. Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott stepped up to help Kristin transform Tiffany’s home into a functional space flooded with touches of modern glamour.

Making Stylish Curb Appeal Updates

Kristin, Drew and Jonathan made updates to the home indoors and out. They repainted the exterior, added a power gate and planted lush greenery to offer privacy from the road. Tiffany is a recent first-time homebuyer who always dreamed of renovating her forever home. She even takes on part-time jobs to save money for reno projects. “She keeps me on point,” said Kristin of Tiffany. “It’s so impressive how independent she is and that’s part of the reason I wanted to do [this]. She never would have dreamed of asking for it.”

Before: The Living Area

Dated ceramic tiles extended from the kitchen, through the dining room and into the living room of Tiffany and Lyric’s home. Passthroughs between rooms compromised the flow of their main living area. Kristin and the design team sought to unify the three spaces and create a modern, glamorous home for mother and daughter.

After: The Living Area

Drew and Jonathan removed the walls between the living room, kitchen and dining rooms to create an open living area. Engineered European Oak hardwood floors replace the tile. Recessed lighting adds modern flair, while a contemporary pendant baths the sleek kitchen island in a warm glow. The best unseen touch: The team updated Tiffany’s HVAC system to provide her home with central air conditioning.
